2005-09-13 - Dear Gotthard fans, some more news from the Gotthard camp.
NEW SINGLE: now that the album LIPSERVICE has been in the Swiss charts for the past 18 weeks, the new single ANYTIME, ANYWHERE will be released in Switzerland on October 3rd, 2005 (it will be released in the other countries on October 14th, 2005). The maxi-single will include two versions of ANYTIME ANYWHERE, one live version of IN THE NAME (from the G. album), two of the bonus tracks from the album LIPSERVICE and the terrific video of ANYTIME ANYWHERE. This is a really explosive GOTTHARD package for your player.
NEUES VIDEO: as already mentioned above there is also a new video of ANYTIME ANYWHERE. A complex, partially computer-animated production in the style of the new SIN CITY movie directed by Hannes Rossacher, who has received almost all relevant film, TV and video awards for his videos and documentaries with and about Queen, The Rolling Stones, Michael Jackson, Bruce Springsteen, Bon Jovi and many others. The new video can already be enjoyed on various music channels.
FANSHOP: our online shop now has all the items in the LIPSERVICE collection. Besides the current T-shirts, caps, mouse pads, belt bags, lighters and cups you can also buy the various versions of the album LIPSERVICE and the single LIFT U UP via the online shop. Another note on T-shirts you may already have bought from the online shop or at the live concerts: unfortunately the printing on some Lipservice Festival T-shirts was not fixed correctly by the manufacturer so that some parts of the printing fade after washing. Those fans affected by this can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and will be provided with a replacement free of charge.
FANCLUB: there have been many, many new registrations at the fan club since the release of LIPSERVICE. Because of this large number of new registrations there were unfortunately some delays in sending the welcome packages. We apologize for this, hope you understand the problem and thank the affected new members for their patience. The new fan club magazine ALL ACCESS No.27 is currently being produced at high speed and should reach every member by the end of the September. As the band is totally booked up with concerts and promotional dates until the end of the year we have decided not to hold the fan club meeting this year. They will return next year and we are once again planning something really special. We are not telling yet, but as soon as date and location are decided we will inform all members.
WEBSITE: our website at http://www.gotthard.com has been completely re-designed with the release of LIPSERVICE. Many more pictures, videos, wallpapers, updated personal details of all band members, all the lyrics for the GOTTHARD songs and much more await you there. Come and visit us in the forum and exchange views with other GOTTHARD fans. The website can all be read in both German and English and further languages are already planned.
CONCERTS: the open-air and festival season is coming to an end and there were so many celebrated concerts by GOTTHARD, both in the sunshine and the rain. Photos of the concerts can be found on our website. Many concerts have already been booked across Europe for the tour in the autumn. Besides Switzerland, Germany and Austria GOTTHARD will also play concerts in England, France, Belgium, Holland, Italy, Spain, Portugal and Slovenia. Concerts are also still being planned in Asia, America and South America. All confirmed concerts can be found listed below and of course - updated frequently - on our website.
